K.M.G. General Hospital, Balasinor, Gujarat, India

Welcome to Kacheria Mojilal Gordhandas General Hospital

KMG General Hospital is located in the Mahisagar district. It was established in 1951, and is run by the KMG General Hospital Trust in Balasinor. It started as a small outdoor dispensary in 1951 and now serves the city of Balasinor taking care of over 120,000 people each year! Most of the patients live far below the poverty line and come from rural areas within about 45 km of the hospital. Without the hospital and its charitable mission, most of these people would have little or no access to adequate healthcare.
The hospital now has 100 beds for patient care which offers multi-disciplinary medical services, with the help of a dedicated staff of over 70 people that includes both full-time and visiting doctors.

Our Vision for the Future

Under the guidance of the old guard and the enthusiastic new team in consultation with Dr. Shishir Gandhi from Anand , we have planned to construct new supper speciality centre within the campus of the hospital . Our vision is to provide to the poor and needy the same level of service that an individual may receive in a metropolitan city or a large town. We are all equal in the eyes of God, and healthcare should be no different.Besides the Intensive care unit, we plan to add, Primary aspects of Cancer Detection,while all the time keeping our focus on preventive medicine. (We expect this project to be completed in 3 to 5 years.)
